The Table Rock Lake Chamber of Commerce honored Reeds Spring Elementary School teacher Brian Kelley as September’s Teacher of the Month.
Kelley teaches third grade. Principal Laura Weber said Kelley has an innovative teaching style.
“He frequently uses collaborative grouping strategies where students take the lead in guiding the learning process,” Weber said. “Mr. Kelley provides just the right amount of scaffolding for his students. This sets them up for success while still providing multiple opportunities for critical thinking.”
Students in Mr. Kelley’s classroom are always highly engaged in their learning. He works with students to develop a culture where students feel safe to take risks and to learn from one another.“Mr. Kelley sees the potential for growth in all students and works to help the students see that potential in themselves,” Weber said. "Students develop a sense of confidence and are motivated to do their best at all times. Reeds Spring Elementary School is fortunate to have Mr. Kelley as a part of the team!”
